Capilano University holds open house in Squamish

At least 100 people were in attendance at the Squamish Adventure Centre to learn about educational programs.

Capilano University held an open house on March 14 in preparation for the opening of its Squamish campus in the fall.

At least 100 people attended the event at the Squamish Adventure Centre. They were welcomed by a short history lesson and song from Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish Nation) member Tsawaysia Spukwus (Alice Guss). 

From there, tables were set up where prospective students and community members could learn more about the programming from CapU. 

Additionally, presentations about some of the available degrees and diplomas were trickled in throughout the evening.

In recent months CapU announced the school will offer numerous programs:

  • Adult Basic Education
  • Early Childhood Care and Education diploma
  • Bachelor of Early Childhood Care and Education degree
  • Tourism Management Co-op Education diploma
  • Associate of Arts degree
  • Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies degree

The Squamish campus aims to have 120 students when it kicks off in September. 

It was announced in August 2023 that CapU purchased the location with the help of the provincial government after Quest University closed due to financial trouble.
